Social Fabric Earth Return
by Claudia Hill
Social Fabric Earth Return is a travel diary of a handwoven poncho with the keynote of interconnectedness. Over a period of ten years, the poncho was sent out as a textile avatar to meet various artists around the world. The interactions with the poncho, through photography and correspondence, sketch out the journey and tell a story of togetherness in a world that has changed drastically over those years. The project inspires the question: What is the most essential element of what you do, and how can it be shared in a significant way?
